With the recent 25-year anniversary of the passage of ADA, it is critical that local governments recognize their obligation to upgrade streets, sidewalks and facilities for accessibility. ADA requires that public agencies perform self-evaluations and prepare transition plans. They were to have been completed by July 26, 1992 and be updated periodically. This session examines the background to and enforcement of the self-evaluation and transition plan requirements. Several landmark court cases with respect to ADA are also highlighted. The self-evaluation process and contents of a transition plan are discussed in detail. A case study involving a critique of an existing transition plan is presented to illustrate these items. The session concludes with a “To Do” list of next steps participants need to take and a toolkit of helpful resources.
